Malacca, Malaysia - Nyonya Laksa at Donald & Lily's

klyeoh | Mar 31, 2012 09:36 AM

This eclectic eatery started off as a kerb-side stall dispensing popular Nyonya chendol dessert to its legion of fans.

Nowadays, Malaysian and Singaporean Nyonya-foodlovers visit Donald & Lily's for their Nyonya Laksa and Mee Siam, besides a small selection of other Nyonya casual eats.

I was here for the Nyonya Laksa - it was piquant, topped with cockles and finely-julienned fishcake & egg omelette. The taste and scent of this Malaccan-style Nyonya laksa was very close to Singaporean Katong- laksa, but the latter had a distinct dried shrimp flavor which was not present in Malaccan ones.

Donald & Lily's version was very coconut creme-rich and a bit too creamy for my taste. I wished the spices had been stronger.
